6 August, 2015 - by Gerry Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has met senior PSNI officers to discuss the policing of parades and protests due to be held this weekend. 

Mr Kelly said: 

"A Sinn Féin delegation met with senior PSNI officers today to discuss policing arrangements for parades this weekend. 

"It is our view that all determinations issued by the Parades Commission in respect of parades this weekend should be respected. 

"At today's meeting we made it clear that policing of all parades and protests should be even handed and consistent, whether it is for nationalist or loyal order parades. 

"We appeal to all those involved in the weekend's parades and protests to ensure they pass off peacefully."
